We have finally given in to demand for our courses to be delivered Via Zoom. After a recent pilot course proved successful, we are now going to offer the “Zoom” alternative for everyone that cannot attend a course at our main office in North Lincolnshire. The content on these “distance” learning courses is exactly the same as the attendance versions and all of the courses are still hosted by Jan Fennell, the original Dog Listener and creator of Amichien® Bonding. For those that wish to become Dog Listeners themselves, these courses count in exactly the same way as the attendance...
Our New "Distance" Courses

Last weekend we held our first “distance learning” Foundation Course, using the Zoom platform. We did have some major concerns about how this would affect the learning process and the retention of the information given to our students. However, at the end of the second day, there is a group exercise which really gives us a good insight into what our students have learned, and we were delighted to see this course was just as effective as the attendance courses. That’s great news because it means we can host more of these classes and open up the courses to people...
New Book Available-Debunking Common Dog Myths
Posted on 02/03/2021
A new book on debunking commonly held beliefs about the dog world is now available in-store. Why the need for this information? There are so many common misconceptions relating to owning, and working with, dogs that have become accepted as truths, simply because so many people have repeated them to so many others, because they were told years ago by someone else. However, if we examine these myths objectively, we can see how ridiculous some of them are, others are more subtle and have a veneer of plausibility and that can make them a real hinderance to the learning process,...
New Online Foundation Course
Posted on 19/01/2021
Things have been changing very rapidly over the last year, for all of us and, consequently, we have all had to adapt and find new ways of doing things. As a result of these changing circumstances, we are now offering an online version of our Foundation Course which, although still a two-day course, will be delivered via “Zoom”. This means that for anyone who wants to learn more about Amichien Bonding but would have had difficulty in travelling to us, or found that the additional costs of travel and accommodation put the course out of their reach, will now find...
Abandon the ‘Blame Game’ and Succeed
Posted on 04/08/2020
Once I learnt to avoid blaming others for things that happened to me I was ability to improve, achieve and grow. The reason being, that we almost always play an integral part in every event that comes our way. Whether it be the casual remark that “I would try almost anything” and then discovered that I had been taken at my word and the result was a tandem skydive as a birthday present from my offspring, to simply having a bad day and then realising that I was in less than joyful mood from first thing in the morning. It...
